Sometimes over the winter months the tube going to the ice maker can become blocked with ice and cause this tube to pop out.

1. With the water supply going to your refrigerator on take a look at the end that popped out and see if you can see it drip at all. If it does not drip just clear the ice out of the ice maker fill tube, then replace the line that popped out and you will be good to go.

2. If you do see a drip come out of the end that popped out you will need to trace that line back to the valve its connected to and replace that valve.

Thanks for asking.

I have a Jenn Air JRSD209W refrigerator. The ice maker stopped making ice. So far I have replaced the water supply solenoid and the ice maker unit. The unit is cycling mechanically, but no water is...


Check the water line that goes from the water fill valve to the ice maker to see if it's frozen shut.
You can remove the ice maker water line from the water fill valve and see if you can blow air through it. If you can't blow through it then its frozen shut.
Sometimes they freeze shut if the water inlet valve was seeping a little water past it when it was off.
If that is the case you have already replaced it so after thawing the water line out you should be good to go.

Ice maker not making ice water dispenser works well


There are 2 solenoids, one controls the water dispenser the other controls the ice maker water supply. Follow the tubing down the back of the refrigerator to find the ice maker solenoid. If the line is frozen between the back of the refrigerator and the ice maker it won't make ice either. If the line is frozen you need to check to see if the solenoid is leaking, this allows a trickle of water to continously flow through the lina and freeze.

Ice maker stopped working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker won't work. Water is coming out of the back of the unit


IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR ICE MAKER FILL TUBE IS FROZEN AND YOUR LINE POPED OFF. YOU NEED TO DEFROST THE FILL TUBE MANY TIMES THIS HAPPENS FROM POOR WATER PRESSURE EITHER YOUR HOUSE LINE OR THE REFRIGERATOR FILL VALVE.

Water filter keeps poping out when ice maker kicks on


replace filter if restricted. if ice has formed in tube coming into ice maker, remove ice and replace water valve. this is causing back pressure and poppin line off.

Ice maker not making ice


Water solenoid to ice maker not working. Check with ohm meter..should NOT read open
Water line to Ice maker frozen solid. Look at water inlet to ice maker....is ice present in line?
Evaporator coils frozen over with ice. Will cause water line to freeze and unit will slowly thaw.
Try unplugging the unit for several hours and see if it starts to cool normally again. If it cools normally then check heater element and Defrost Thermostat.
